Since the awesome second season finale of Alphas ended on a huge cliffhanger, fans of the serie are feverishly waiting for a third season to happen. But the low ratings throughout the season (with the notable exception of Summer Glau's episode s02e06 'Alphaville') don't bode well for a renewal.
More, Syfy vice-president Craig Endler is not going to give informations soon.
Fortunately, TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich’s weekly column offers a glimmer of hope for all Alphas fans who were resigned to see another sci-fi show disappear prematurely without giving fans any closure of some sort.
Here’s some scoop on Alphas from TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich in 'Matt’s Inside Line' for the week of 10/25/12 :
Juli : Please tell me the likelihood of Alphas returning for Season 3 is high! After the Season 2 finale, I will WEEP if the show doesn’t return.
Matt Webb Mitovich : I wouldn’t go so far as to say the likelihood of renewal is “high,” but at the very least it shouldn’t be ruled out. Depending on how all the DVR playback data and such stacks up, I’m hearing the odds of getting Season 3 are no less than 50/50.

The best way to get a third season of Alphas is to show Syfy channel that they can make money with the serie. Which means buying the season one DVD or buying episodes online at Amazon Instant Video for example.
Alphas season finale is currently 68th on the sales chart.
Side note : Amazon is always giving out Video credit which can be used for Alphas; example:

alphas ending talk about a cliffhanger. i was on the edge of my seat wondering what had happened. to the team apart from gary, which seem to have no effect on him at all. sets it up nicely for a season three. skylar adams was an asset in helping the team to bring down parish. summer glau was outstanding in the last two episodes. really up the tempo of the show, regardless of the ratings scfy have got themselves a really great show in there grasp, surely they are not gonna let it go,

i wonder when they are gonna put us out of our misery, or are they keeping there cards close to there chest. with the season three of alphas, surely they must know by now whether they want it or they dont, they seem to be pretty quick when they announce the seasons of haven, wouldnt surprise me if they just flip a coin heads or tails, only joking.
